"In essence, CTA trains are safe enough to ride. . . ."

Bonus: "In other instances, the CTA blamed insufficient funds to implement changes. For instance, the RTA pointed out that the CTA dropped its requirement that rail employees working in safety-sensitive positions regularly undergo medical exams.
